My passion has always been in getting things done. Co-ordination, logistics, putting things into order are what gives me satisfaction. I see every challenge as an opportunity to demonstrate my unique skills in customer service that  underlines the character of House of Rose Professional. We are small but mighty.  Helping organize Break the ceiling touch the sky® – the success and leadership summit for women since 2015 alongside Anthony  has been transformational for me.  It is already helping to create so many opportunities for the women that attended. That gives me so much satisfaction to help others succeed. I am looking forward to the 2018 World Tour of the summit as we positively impact many more leaders around the world.
